    Just over 100k there is a slight pink tinge to the roof and passanger rear quarter and small amount of rust on the boot lid but generally a solid/tidy car

    That really is in amazing condition. So hope you keep it standard and looking like that. It'll be worth a few grand at least soon

    Mine was a D plate and had the wing mirrors a 1/4 way up the doors as it had front 1/4 windows. The wipers also went the wrong way which made me think that i was a german car converted to rhd

    until half way through E plate (83-87 cars) all Golf 2 had those front windows with the 1/4 galss and the wing mirrors in that position, and the LHD wipers.

    late E to Early G (88 & 89) they had the full front window and the RHD wipers

    Late G to end, J, (90 & 91) they were Big bumper

    Those pics weren't taken at Harewood House by any chance were they? It's just that they had the VW Festival there at the weekend.

    Nice motor btw!

    Ahh Mk2 16V, the car I lost my license in all those years ago when one angry Traffic Robot posed the question "Do you think your your cars fast son!?" to which I shrugged & he blared "COS WE COULDNT FCUKING CATCH YOU!!"

    I loved that car

    Good choice mate

    Very nice, small bumpers always look better to me.

    Hope you leave it on 14s. If you can still get standard bushes from VW they're worth it and Koni T/As with standard springs works well, though I prefered Eibachs.

    Nice, I've always been a fan of VW's.

    My mate bought a crash damaged atlas grey 3dr 16v big bumper off a stoner student for 400. 30's worth 2nd parts later it was MOT'd and on the road

    Oak green 5dr big bumper is the one for me though
